3 CUYAHOGA COUNTY WORKFORCE INDICATORS, 2014 Introduction This report is an update of a previous study, 2008 Cuyahoga County Workforce Indicators, 1 prepared by Community Solutions for the Cleveland/Cuyahoga County Workforce Investment Board. That study examined the characteristics of the county s workforce using data from the 2006 American Community Survey (ACS). This updated report uses a three year pooled sample from the ACS Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS), 2 covering , with some comparisons to the period. 3 As employment is a lagging indicator of economic growth, these two periods can approximate workforce conditions just before ( ) and in the depth of ( ) the Great Recession of 2007 to It is the goal of these analyses to assist local workforce development programs to identify the subpopulations most in need of assistance, such as younger workers, those with educational deficits, and racial/ethnic minorities. Key Findings Labor force participation declined and unemployment greatly increased for most demographic groups in Cuyahoga County between and Although more males than females were in the labor force, males also experienced higher unemployment rates. Labor force participation was lower and unemployment higher in both periods for young workers age 16 to 24, African Americans, those with only a 12 th grade education or less, and residents of the city of Cleveland compared to Cuyahoga County suburbs. These disparities in labor force participation and unemployment rates were reflected in the composition of the three labor force subpopulations: the employed, the unemployed, and those not in the labor force. For example, the unemployed are disproportionately younger (age 16 to 24), African American, having only a high school diploma or less, living in a female headed family, never married, or having a household income less than $25,000. Almost half of all employed persons in the county were in the following five occupational groups in : Office and Administrative Support; Sales; Management; Production; and Food Preparation and Serving.

4 The unemployment rate in the county was above 20 percent in for workers in Construction and Extraction; Building and Grounds Cleaning and Maintenance; and Transportation and Material Moving occupations. Unemployment was below 4 percent in the following occupations: Healthcare Practitioners and Technical; Computer and Mathematical; Education, Training, and Library; and Legal. The demographic makeup of the employed workforce differed by occupation. o Young workers age 16 to 24 tended to be concentrated in Health Care Support; Personal Care and Service; Sales; and Food Preparation and Serving occupations. o Females predominated in Community and Social Services; Education, Training, and Library; Healthcare Practitioners and Technical; Healthcare Support; Personal Care and Service (including child care); and Office and Administrative Support. o The highest proportion of African American workers were found in Community and Social Services; Healthcare Support; Building and Grounds Cleaning and Maintenance; Personal Care and Service; and Transportation and Material Moving. Compared to their share of the population, Asians and Pacific Islanders had higher proportions of jobs in Computer and Mathematical; Life, Physical, and Social Sciences; and Healthcare Practitioners and Technical. o Workers with only a high school diploma clustered in occupations not requiring more formal academic education, although they may require some additional vocational or on the job training, such as in Installation, Maintenance, and Repair. Many of these occupations were also prevalent among those workers who did not complete high school. As noted above, some of these occupations, such as Transportation and Building and Grounds Cleaning, had unemployment rates exceeding 20 percent in Median earned income in the county (in 2011 dollars) declined 9.4 percent, from $30,333 in , to $27,478 in o Median income was highest among workers age 45 to 64 and lowest among those age 16 to 24. o Males had significantly higher median earned income ($31,709 in ) than females ($23,391). o African Americans had significantly lower median income ($20,696) than Whites ($30,222) or Asian/Pacific Islanders ($33,589).

5 o o o Higher levels of educational attainment were significantly associated with higher median incomes. The occupations with the highest median incomes in were: Computer and Mathematical; Legal; Architecture and Engineering; Management; and Financial Specialists. The occupations with the lowest median incomes were: Food Preparation and Serving; Personal Care and Service; Building and Grounds Cleaning and Maintenance; Healthcare Support; and Sales.

6 A. Labor Force Participation and Unemployment In the aftermath of the Great Recession of 2007 to 2009, unemployment rates rose dramatically and only slowly subsided. Labor force participation is closely related to unemployment and sometimes confounds its interpretation. The labor force consists of those age 16 or over who are working (employed) and those who are not working but actively seeking work (unemployed). The official unemployment rate only counts those who are looking for work, and excludes those who, among others, have given up looking for work ( discouraged workers ), have retired early, or become full time homemakers. This section examines the labor force participation and unemployment rates for Cuyahoga County by age, gender, race, and educational attainment for the period during the worst of the recession. Labor Force Participation The Cuyahoga County labor force numbered 653,000 in , or 63.5 percent of the population age 16 and over. This was significantly 4 lower than the statewide rate of 64.3 percent, and a significant decline from the county s rate of 64.8 percent in (see Figure A 1). Figure A-1 Labor Force Participation Rates and Ohio 65.4% 64.3% Cuyahoga County 64.8% 63.5% Cleveland 60.1% 59.0% Suburbs 66.8% 65.6% 0.0% 20.0% 40.0% 60.0% 80.0% 100.0% The Center for Community Solutions Page 6

7 Age, Gender, Race, and Ethnicity: Labor force participation in the county was highest among adults age 25 to 44, 84.6 percent, compared to 60.9 percent for young adults age 16 to 24, 73.0 percent for adults 45 to 64, and 15.0 percent for seniors 65 and over (see Figure A 2). Males had a significantly higher participation rate (67.8 percent) than females (59.8 percent) (see Figure A 3). African Americans had a significantly lower rate (59.9 percent) than Whites (64.8 percent), Asian/Pacific Americans (66.8 percent), and other or multiple race individuals (67.7 percent) (see Figure A 4). Hispanics, who may be of any race, had a participation rate of 67.0 percent. Educational Attainment: Labor force participation was significantly highest among those with four or more years of college (77.9 percent), compared to 72.5 percent of those with one to three years of college, and 59.6 percent of those with only a high school diploma. Only 35.0 percent of those 16 and over without a high school diploma were in the labor force, not significantly different from the statewide rate of 35.7 percent. Counting only those in the prime working ages of 18 to 64, just over half 41,300 of 78,500 of high school dropouts in the county (52.6 percent) were in the labor force (see Figure A 5).

It was also significantly higher for males (14.7 percent) than for females (11.4 percent) (see Figure A 8). Almost one fourth (22.7 percent) of African Americans in the county s labor force were unemployed, more than twice the rate for Whites (9.3 percent) and Asian/Pacific workers (6.4 percent). The unemployment rate was also high for those of other or multiple races (21.1 percent) and Hispanics of any race (17.9 percent) (see Figure A 9). Educational Attainment: As education increases, unemployment decreases. Those without a high school diploma had the highest unemployment rate (33.7 percent), and those with at least a bachelor s degree had the lowest (5.1 percent). Those with only a high school diploma had an unemployment rate of 16.7 percent and those with some college but no degree had a rate of 11.3 percent (see Figure A 10).

13 Comparison between Cleveland and Cuyahoga Suburbs Labor force participation was significantly lower, and unemployment significantly higher, in the city of Cleveland compared to Cuyahoga County suburbs. In , only 59.0 percent of Cleveland residents age 16 and over were in the labor force, compared to 65.6 percent of suburbanites (see Figure A 1). In the same period, the unemployment rate in Cleveland was 21.2 percent, compared to the suburban rate of 9.8 percent (see Figure A 6). Labor force participation was significantly lower in Cleveland than in the suburbs for all age, gender, and racial groups, except for age 16 to 24 and those of Asian/Pacific races; there was no significant difference by level of educational attainment. Likewise, unemployment was significantly higher in Cleveland for all age, gender, and racial groups, except those age 65 and over and those of Asian/Pacific background; however, unemployment was significantly higher in Cleveland than in the suburbs for all educational groups except college graduates.

14 B. Demographics of Labor Force Subpopulations This section compares the demographic characteristics of the three labor force subpopulations: (1) the employed; (2) the unemployed (i.e., looking for work): and (3) those not in the labor force (i.e., not looking for work). These characteristics are given for persons age 16 to 64 in Cuyahoga County in Age Figure B-1 Age Group by Labor Force Status, Ages 16 to 64 Cuyahoga County, % 80% 44.3% 30.2% 47.7% 43.7% 60% 40% 43.2% 41.3% 23.8% 38.2% 45 to to to 24 20% 0% 12.5% 28.5% 28.6% Employed Unemployed Not in the Labor Force 18.1% Total Population Young adults age 16 to 24 made up only 12.5 percent of the employed population in the county, but 28.5 percent of the unemployed and 28.6 percent of persons not in the labor force. Statewide, young adults comprised a slight but statistically significant higher proportion (13.6 percent) of the employed. Adults 25 to 44 made up almost equal proportions of the employed (43.2 percent) and unemployed (41.3 percent of the unemployed) and a quarter (23.8 percent) of those not in the labor force. Older working age adults 45 to 64 made up 44.3 percent of the employed, 30.2 percent of the unemployed, and 47.7 percent of those not in the labor force (see Figure B 1). The median age of the unemployed in Cuyahoga County was 34.6 years, significantly younger than the median of the employed (41.4 years) and those not in the labor force (42.4 years). These were all slightly but significantly older than the corresponding median ages statewide: 33.7 The Center for Community Solutions Page 14

Gender Figure B-2 Gender by Labor Force Status, Age 16 to 64 Cuyahoga County, % 80% 51.4% 44.0% 56.4% 51.9% 60% 40% Female Male 20% 48.7% 56.0% 43.6% 48.1% 0% Employed Unemployed Not in the Labor Force Total Population Significantly more females than males were employed in the county (51.4 percent female to 48.7 percent males), and significantly more males (56.0 percent) than females (44.0 percent) were unemployed. Of those not in the labor force, 56.4 percent were female and 43.6 percent were male (see Figure B 2). Among the employed statewide, a slight majority were male (51.0 percent), although more males (57.0 percent) than females were unemployed, and more females (57.1 percent) than males were not in the labor force.

African Americans made up 46.7 percent of the unemployed, but only 23.8 percent of the employed and 37.4 percent of those not in the labor force. The remainder of each category was composed of persons of Asian, Pacific Islander, other, or multiple races (see Figure B 3). Hispanics of all races made up 4.6 percent of the total working age population; they comprised a significantly higher proportion of the unemployed (5.9 percent) than of the employed (4.1 percent), and 5.3 percent of those not in the labor force. In Ohio as a whole, Whites made up 86.1 percent of the employed and 74.7 percent of the unemployed, while African Americans were 9.8 percent of the employed but 20.8 percent of the unemployed. Hispanics comprised 2.7 percent of the employed and 3.4 percent of the unemployed, a significant difference. Of those not in the labor force statewide, 79.3 percent were white and 15.7 percent were African Americans; 3.2 percent were Hispanic. The Center for Community Solutions Page 16

One third (33.1 percent) of the employed, but more than twofifths (44.4 percent) of the unemployed had only a high school diploma; they also made up more than one third (36.2 percent) of those not in the labor force. Altogether, persons with at most a high school diploma made up 39.3 percent of the employed and almost two thirds (65.8 percent) of the unemployed. Those with some college but no degree fared somewhat better, comprising 26.3 percent of the employed and 22.2 percent of the unemployed, as well as 19.5 percent of those not in the labor force. Persons with at least a bachelor s degree made up more than one third (34.4 percent) of the employed, but only 12.0 percent of the unemployed and 14.1 percent of those not in the labor force (see Figure B 4). Statewide, both the employed and the unemployed had significantly lower educational attainment than in Cuyahoga County. Thirty nine percent of Ohio s employed had only a high school diploma, higher than the county proportion, and 28.6 had at least a bachelor s degree, lower than the county. Among the state s unemployed, almost half (49.4 percent) had only a high school diploma, while only 9.7 percent had four years of college or more. The Center for Community Solutions Page 17

Persons living in female headed families made up only 18.1 percent of the employed, compared to 35.6 percent of the unemployed and 25.5 percent of those not in the labor force. All other household types (including persons living alone) accounted for 29.1 percent of the employed, 29.0 percent of the unemployed, and 27.4 percent of those not in the labor force (see Figure B 5). In Ohio as a whole, a significantly higher proportion in all labor force categories were married, and a significantly lower proportion were in female headed families.

23 C. Occupation Cuyahoga County: The occupational groups 6 with the most workers in the county in were: Office and Administrative Support (79,266 persons employed) Sales (58,551) Management (50,346) Production (33,682) Food Preparation and Serving (33,596) Together, these five categories represented almost half (48.1 percent) of all employed persons. Three of these five groups Office and Administrative Support, Sales, and Production showed a significant decline in the number employed since Employment for all categories for both time periods is detailed in Table C 1 below. The unemployment rate in in the county was highest for Construction and Extraction workers (25.3 percent), followed by Building and Grounds Cleaning and Maintenance (21.0 percent), Transportation and Material Moving (20.0 percent), Food Preparation and Serving (17.6 percent), and Sales (13.3 percent). The lowest unemployment rates were experienced by Healthcare Practitioners and Technical (1.7 percent); Computer and Mathematical (2.6 percent); Educational, Training, and Library (3.3 percent); and Legal (3.5 percent). For most occupational groups the unemployment rate was significantly higher in than in ; these are denoted by an (*) in Table C 1. The Center for Community Solutions Page 23

41 Conclusion Where Do We Go From Here? The data presented in this report describe the Cuyahoga County labor force as it existed in , with some comparisons to the period. Although the Great Recession officially ended in June, 2009, employment is a lagging indicator of economic growth, and we may regard the data as reflecting the depth of the recession. More recently, between May, 2012, and May, 2013, the Cleveland Elyria Mentor MSA lost 5,600 jobs, more than any other metropolitan area in the country. 7 Although workers with a bachelor s degree or higher have the lowest unemployment rates, 53.6 percent of college graduates under age 25 nationally were unemployed or underemployed in 2011, up from 41 percent in In general, much of the decline in the unemployment rate during the recovery has been due to people dropping out of the labor force rather than to an increase in the number of people with jobs. 9 Both nationally 10 and locally, 11 middle wage occupations suffered the greatest losses during the recession, but growth in low wage jobs has predominated during the recovery, contributing to the long term rise in income inequality. Strategies to increase labor force participation and reduce unemployment are widely varied. They can address the workforce by helping people get and retain jobs, or focus on employers to create additional employment opportunities. In Ohio, local Workforce Investment Boards administer federal funding through the Workforce Investment Act, including programs that provide training, services to dislocated workers, job search assistance, and career advancement. Eligibility for federal unemployment benefits is an important component of helping job seekers cope with the effects of high unemployment. On the job creation side, several public and private economic development initiatives such as Jobs Ohio, Fund for Our Economic Future, Nor Tech, and Team NEO are underway to expand existing industries and grow new businesses in the region. One such strategy is to modernize and revive the area s manufacturing sector. In April, 2014, there were 7,400 open manufacturing jobs in the region. 12 One reason these jobs remain unfilled is a lack of skills in the workforce to operate computerized manufacturing technology. Businesses and educational institutions, especially technical and community colleges, are collaborating not only to train workers but to direct their efforts toward innovation and entrepreneurship to further grow the local economy and remain competitive with other regions. This emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education has also extended to the K 12 curriculum in many school districts. The health care sector, long a regional strength, represents another opportunity for job growth. According to a recent report by the Bookings Institute, there were 53,000 workers in health The Center for Community Solutions Page 41
